It has become commonplace for companies to announce downloadable content for a game that hasn't released yet.
Well, okay, Dead Space 2 officially hits store shelves today so it is out, but this is still a relatively early announcement: the first batch of DLC, dubbed "Severed," has been announced . The pack features two new missions that introduce Dead Space: Extraction character Gabe Weller and Lexine Murdock into the DS2 universe. You'll play as Gabe, a Sprawl Security Guard, and you must take down the rampaging necromorphs to get Lexine to safety. This DLC will be available "later this year" for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but we don't yet have an exact date or price. Oh, and unsurprisingly, Dead Space 2 participates in the EA Online Pass program, which means if you buy it new, it'll come with a code that gives you full access to the online features. If you buy it used, you'll have to pay the $10 (or 800 Microsoft Points) to gain access. You'll just have to get used to it.
Has anyone else noticed the "your mother will hate it" ads on TV? Great. Enter the anti-game activists; you can just sense them swarming.
